We Will Give Them Christ


ritual

Martin Luther (1483-1546) strongly challenged the church of his day over un-Scriptural practices like forgiving sins for donations of money, or the veneration of artifacts and relics. These practices drastically clouded over the Good News.

Luther’s mentor pleaded with him to take it easy and not push so hard for reformation.  “But Martin, if we get rid of all these things – the practices so many common people cling to – what will we give them in their place?

Luther replied firmly and intently, “Why, Sir, we will give them Christ! Yes, we will give them Christ!

We have more than our share of un-biblical practices in churchianity today. Traditions. Good deeds. Rituals. Spiritualism. Relativism. Cultural relevance. Religion.

What we need is Christ.

I did not come to you with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified (1 Corinthians 2:1-2).
